If your Firefox browser takes more time to open, you can tweak it to load and open faster. Firefox takes a bit more time to load and open as it goes through several processes before opening. Firefox loads all dll files, collects informations about plugin updates, loads all plugins and then starts. processing all above operations takes time and you have to wait until it goes through all of them and gets started. If you want to load firefox faster, you have to minimize the processes so that it would take minimal time during start up. Let’s know how to make Firefox start up faster.
1. Download UPX file.
2. Extract upx.exe file in your Firefox installation folder. In most cases it should be C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
3. Close Firefox browser. Shell a command prompt in firefox installation directory. Type the following code in the command prompt and hit Enter.
for %v in (*.exe *.dll components\*.dll plugins\*.dll) do upx “C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\%v”
4. The above command prompt code will compress your .dll files. In case you need to decompress them in future, you can type the following code in command prompt and hit enter.
for %v in (*.exe *.dll components\*.dll plugins\*.dll) do upx-d “C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\%v”
That’s it. Now you have compressed all Mozilla Firefox .dll files and as a result your Firefox browser will open faster during start up. There are also some other ways to speed up Firefox, I will post about them later.
